Ulta Beauty 21 Days of Beauty
In collaboration with Ulta Beauty and People StyleWatch, featured here are 4 of my favorite finds from the Ulta Beauty 21 Days of Beauty event, plus tips on how to use these products to help you look like a natural beauty everyday.
When it comes to the perfect eyeliner, we all want a long-wearing, easy-to-apply eyeliner that glides on smoothly, sets quickly, and defines our eyes. Since many liquid eyeliners are messy, cumbersome, and difficult to apply, what makes the Tarte Precision Longwear Liner stand out is its felt tip style applicator. Similar to drawing with a fine tip permanent marker, you can quickly and easily get the perfect line that lasts from day-to-night without smudging or budging.
How To Use Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Precision Longwear Liner:
For a natural, everyday look, draw a thin line from the middle of your eye outward to the corner of your eye, gradually thickening the tip. The closer you work the product into your lash-line, the thicker your eyelashes look.
When you want added drama for evening or a special event, create a cat eye look by extending the liner out past the outer corner of your eyes, and lightly flicking up at the end for a turned-up line. This bold eyeliner look not only accentuates your eyes, it also gives you the immediate effect of having an eye-lift (without heading to the plastic surgeon’s office).
Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara: (

For fuller, longer lashes, toss out those clumsy falsies and eyelash glue and opt for the Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara instead. Created to lengthen, curl, and thicken lashes with just one easy swipe. Said to provide a 104% increase in lash volume, this is the ultimate steal of a deal for mega-watt lashes.
How To Use Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara:
If you’re too busy to fuss with 2-in-1 mascaras that require you to apply fiber extensions in addition to mascara, then the Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara will quickly become your go-to mascara for everyday.
Simply swipe 1-2 coats of mascara onto clean lashes, starting at the base working your way up to the tips of your lashes. For added volume, wiggle the wand back-and-forth while applying to really work the product onto your lashes.
It Cosmetics Eyelift in a Tube: (
Reg. $29 Sale $14.50 Date: 9/15/15)
Have you ever wondered why some women seem to always look luminous and radiant? Here’s their secret! To help you get that “lit-from-within” glow, the miraculous It Cosmetics Eyelift in a Tube 2-in-1 concealer and highlighter wand is the fastest and easiest way to make your skin look fresh and dewy, while brightening your eyes and skin. The full-coverage concealer instantly erases the appearance of dark circles, redness, or discoloration (without ever looking dry or cakey). The highlighter helps light bounce off your skin, giving you an illuminated glow.
How To Use It Cosmetics Eyelift in a Tube:
Start by lightly dabbing the concealer on your eyelids and anywhere you want to conceal redness or dark circles. Gently press the product into your skin using your clean finger to help the product blend into the skin more easily.
Then apply a few dots of the highlighter onto the brow bone, inner corner of your eye, and along the top of your cheekbone. Blend the product into your skin. This helps draw light to key parts of your face, giving it a more youthful appearance.
Too Faced La Crème Color Drenched Lip Cream: (
Reg. $22 Sale $11 Date: 9/9/15)
Pucker up, gals! Too Faced La Crème Color Drenched Lip Cream is your new dream product for kissably soft lips. Whether you want a bold pout with notice-me color (like coral red) or prefer a subtle, girl-next-door look (with a pink nude), this gorgeous lipstick comes in a wide variety of shades that flatter every skin-tone. Infused with hydrating ingredients, this ultra-moisturizing lip product not only plays up your pout, it also conditions and moisturizes your delicate lips.
How To Use Too Faced La Crème Color Drenched Lip Cream:
For an everyday look, an easy-to-wear hue is a nude color with a slightly pinkish cast (the shade shown here is called Nude Beach). This gives your lips a subtle hint of color without looking like you’re wearing makeup. Before applying the lip color, gently exfoliate your lips with a soft toothbrush or damp washcloth. This helps to prepare your lips, ensuring they look soft and supple. Simply apply the color directly from the tube. It’s as easy as that!
From skin-perfecting primers and blushes to revolutionary mascaras and eye makeup, Ulta carries virtually everything you need to look and feel beautiful everyday.
